Pat Pradel, wife of former Naperville mayor A. George Pradel, died early this morning after a long battle with cancer.
Pat had been first diagnosed with cancer 23 years ago, but her condition became more serious in January 2014, when she learned she had stage 4 bone cancer. She died around 6 a.m. at Edward Hospital, surrounded by her husband and children.
George and Pat met through his sister, and were married in August 1960. She drove a special education bus for Naperville School District 203 for more than 20 years, and was a constant support to her husband during his 20 year term as the mayor of Naperville. He retired in May of this year, to be able to spend more time with his wife.
The two have three children – George, Gary, and Carol. Funeral arrangements are pending.
Pat Pradel was 75.
